All that seemed pointless though as last night Achilles incision popped wide open anyway (a week and a half post surgery). He just had another surgery this afternoon to add a skin flap.

Our vet told us that some lump removals take a long time to heal because of the presence of Histamine at the lump site (MCT).

My advice is just to watch your darling like a hawk. Even though they don't like the wrapping, it's great that it's a site that allows a wrap.


Hoping your baby heals quickly!

Did you ever find out what the lump was? and what it looked like? has he ever had lumps before? Our boy seems so sad. He hates the bandage but I know it's good for him. Either tomorrow or Saturday we get to find out what exactly the lump was. We have gone through so much gauze and wrap. Did you boy bleed alot from the incision. Since his incision is right on where his head meets his kneck it's constantly moving. I just wish his swelling would hurry up and go down. He looks like he got bit by a bee, the right side is so swollen still, it feels like water inside of him, probably blood? It is going down a tiny bit every day. I just wish they would hurry up and call me to tell me the lump is benign! AHHHHHHH
I stayed home again. My dad is my boss, but he's strict, he is actually being pretty rude about it all but i honestly dont care, these dogs are my life, im not going to risk an infection or bleeding to death just so i can go into work and sit on a computer and answer phones. i think the world will go on without me for 2 days. thank goodness my husband is off tomorrow so he can watch Bolt. Than the weekend.

Default no results yet :(

No results yet. Bolts face is finally getting normal again thank goodness. I called the vet today and still no results. Hopefully tomorrow! I will definitely let you all know. Just trying to keep the bandage on. He's oozing alot still from one little spot and even the vet said it's OK for it to ooze. And they said the lump wasn't on the lymph node. So let's hope it is nothing bad. More prayers!!!!!!

Default still nothing :(

Well our Vet office is closed. Closed at 1 today. Won't be open until Monday at 8am and they are closing at 1 on Monday. So let's hope the biopsy comes in than. I really thought it would have came in today. Now I have to wait 2 more days. Ugh. I'm not as nervous anymore just because i'm mainly focusing on Bolt and making sure he heals properly and loving on him and my other babies. I just can't keep worrying because I can't do anything about it until I hear what it was. I just can't think of it being anything but benign.
So I will do another update on Monday. Thanks everyone for keeping him in your prayers. I wish they would have taken a picture of it. I would have liked to see this thing that has been haunting me for over a week now. Alot of sleepless nights.

Oh gosh, I was so hoping that you'd know something today. Fingers & paws are crossed that you hear something Monday.

I know I was really really hoping i would have heard something today. I keep calling the vet thinking well maybe they just got it in....but they keep telling me once it comes in the vet will call me asap. Ugh. It's been 4 days since they mailed it out, so 3 days of them having it. I hope the person doing the biopsy on it realizes that there is a worried pet owner wondering. I know it's the Holidays but who would make someone wait until after Christmas. Now my Christmas just won't be the same. I mean how can you make a sweet little face like this wait....
